UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA, CHAPEL HILL, S. C, April 27th, 1898.
Virginia vs. Carolina.
Gome Called on Account of Rain at
Middle of Third.InninK.
The large crowd of spectators that
assembled on the Athletic Park last
Saturday to witness the first Cham
pionship Game, between the Universi
ties of Virginia and Carolina were
doomed to. a great disappointment.
The rain that came on them at the end
rag of the third inning stopped what
promised to be one of the best exhibi
tions of base ball ever seen on this di
amond. Both teams were in excellent
condition and each was equally con
fident of winning. Virginia played a
good game in the field; but Carolina
had no chance to show what sort of
fielding material they were made of.
For 'while the Carolinians batted
Summersgill freely the Virginians
were completely at Lawson's mercy
and ,it scarcely need be said that he
showed none. In the two innings
played La wson struck out four men
and allowed only two fair balls nei
ther of which past the pitcher.
At 3:30 o'clock Mr. Jake Wells,
Manager of the Richmond League
Team, called "play ball", with Caro
lina at the bat.
Rogers was called np and was
thrown out at first by Summersgill.
Capt. Winston then hit a beauty be
tween short and third but was caught
out trying to steal second. McKee
went out on a pop fly to Steptoe.
Amid enthusiastic yells Carolina
trots out on the field and the Virgin
ians come in to try their fortune with
the stick. . If one can judge from the
cheers Lawson is evidently a favorite
- -with the, Carolinians, not the Vir
ginians. He-steps in the box with his
same-old confident smile although
wellknowing that he has opponents
wdrthy of , him. '
.Wills starts the batting list for the
visitors but Lawson's curves are too
much for him and he fails to find the
ball, though he is safe on wild, throw
by. Graves.1 Steptoe fares no better
thin AWills and Lawson has no4idea of
letting up on him. He fans three
times and then sitsdown again.
Martin gets base on balls and Collier
hits an easy one which Graves thows
wild, Wills scoring. Hill fouls out to
McKee and Summersgill is out from
Lawson to Winston.'
Va. 1, "N.C. 0.
Belden fouls out : to -Steptoe and
Lawson cracks out a safe one to cen

second, and Hume is safe, on Will's er
ror. Graves, flies put to Collier.

Williams is out to Martin and Rogers
safe on. Collier's error but is out trying
to steal second. Capt. "Dicey" flies
out to Martin.
Here the rain comes up and the
game .is called I before Virginia can
'get her inning. 1 ' .
" This was the second game of the se-
; ; - )
rjies between Virginia and Carolina
and both have been prevented on ac
count of rain. The games with Vir
ginia are by far too important not to
tje played and it is to be hoped that
some arrangement will be made so
that the series can be played after all.
Carolina never had a better chance of
winning the Championship and as we
have some old scores to even oil' the
spies should be rearranged by all
meams. We understand that this
is Virginia's wish also, so there
should be no difficulty about it.
Play ball Carolina and let us bring
1he Championship once more to U. N.
Dr. Baskerv file's Lecture.
On last Thursday evening- Dr.
Chas. Baskerville delivered the reg
ular fortnightly faculty lecture in
Gerrard Hall to a large and appre
ciative audience. Te subject of the
lecture was: "Habit and Imagina
tion in the Progress of Science."
Jn the beginning of the lecture it
pas stated that we are all creatures
fit til i i 1 . i a
or liaDi., aitnougn tne greatest
leaders have been men of the highest
imagination.' With Sir Humprhey
Davy's idea that "Philosophy is sim
ple and intelligible we owe confus
ed systems to men of vague and ob
scure ideas," he held that habit wa$
t,he regulating force in all forms of
jdiought and action. The laws of
nature are but her innumerable hab-
jts. Outside influences produce
change in the habit of the inorganic
world. Vital force is the outside
agent that directs the habits of all
Inanimate things altered by the
various forms of energy, heat, light
and so on, are plastic, i. e., they
withstand these forces to a certain
extent, but eventually yield ; new
.habits are acquired. xYmmonium
cyanate is thus changed into urea
the eventual result of animal met
abolism. This is a physilogical law
,vvhen the channel through which a
.habit is accustomed to move is block-
led a new way for the performance
of that duty results. This chance
action may be sufficiently repeated
to become a habit. As the Duke of
Wellington exclaimed, "Habit a
second nature! Habit is ten times
nature. " Imagination, so-called cre
ative power, is the result of the re
arrangement of materials furnished
by previous "apprehension, that is
those acquired by habit. The ex
istence of God was first assumed
more majoru?n,then proveed to be a
The frequent stated opposition of
truth and poetry was touched upon
by the lecturer. , While Coleridge
and Poe maintained that science, and
poetry were irreconcilable, the point
was made that true. poetry, the only
kind that will stand, is nothing but
truth, teachings of science, in a crys
tal setting. Thus the poet must
stimulate the scientist to "Rift the,
hills, roll the waters, flash the light
nings, weigh the sun." ,
Science is destructive to conven-,
tions. Freedom is the breath of

Oak Ridge vs. Carolina.
Jcore 14 to 2 in favor of Carolina.
The Varsity tpok the second game
from Oak Ridge with all ease on
Wednesday last. With the excep
tion of a little too much wind the
day was an ideal one, though only a
small crowd tnrned out to see our
tyoysj play an almost errorless game.
Carolina's team work was good and
her patting up to the standard, as a
glance at the hit column will show.
Williams .pitched a great game,
striking out five men and allowing
only three hits. Graves caught a
good game and the work of Wood
ird at short,, Capt. Winston at lirst
and Lawson's star catch in right
For Oak Ridge, Carter in right
did good work, making one of the
niost beautiful catches seen on our
grounds .this season. Donnell at
third played g-ood all round ball
scoring .the two runs, for the visitors.
